    Re: August sheep hunt gear questions

    the Internet has made it so easy to become a hunter nowadays. it took me years of packing to learn what to bring and what not to bring, but I kepted going, when I did get a sheep, all the hard work and trial and error paid off. now we have fourms that people ask what to bring, what to eat, where to go. I personally do not give advise on anything, call me old school or a dick, but that's what it takes to be a sheep hunter. I've packed the wrong food, starved, had the runs, ran out of water, packed a case of beer one time, froze to death, had blisters so bad I couldn't walk for two days and had a hell of a time walking out, Ran into a grizzly bear on a kill. just to name a few of my unsuccessful trips. I never asked anyone where to go and if I did it would have been sent to zipper lip creek.

    Its unfortunate that alot of guys have your attitude. I've worked in several trades and guys have that same attitude there too. It's unfortunate because there is so much wisdom being lost.

    Everyone gets to play their life as they want to, But I know I'll be passing along as much wisdom as I possibly can. One thing the internet is good for is knowledge, it doesn't teach wisdom. There is a vast difference between those two.

    The best part of this forum is the information available. The fact that so many members are willing to share is amazing. Bad attitudes tend to change the moment they need help. Keep sharing HBC!

    The hunt didn't get any easier, you just wasted a bunch of time and money and put yourself in potentially dangerous situations because of your refusal to seek out and learn from people that already made those mistakes.

    The fact that you are still married(?) suggests you wife is pretty awesome!!! Good on you!

Sheep fever is the only “rational” reason.
